Bond Revoked For HS Coach Accused Of Rape

MANCHESTER, Tenn. - A former high school baseball coach in Coffee County has had his bond revoked after being arrested again.

In June 2015, Bradley Weir pleaded not guilty to charges of rape. Officials said he has been facing 16 counts, including statutory rape by an authority figure and aggravated rape charges. He was originally arrested in February 2015.

Weir was accused of having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old girl.

A source has now said Weir was arrested again this April, more than three years after that original arrest, on charges of alleged aggravated assault, resisting arrest, and assault of a police officer in Hamilton County.

On Friday, a judge decided to revoke Weir’s bond meaning he will now remain in custody in the Coffee County Jail until his trial for the sex-related crimes, which has been scheduled for June.

Weir was hired in 2014 as head baseball coach at the high school in Coffee County, but he reportedly never coached a game for the Red Raiders.
